The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effects of oral iron supplementation on endurance performance in initially iron-depleted, nonanemic female distance runners. Eighteen iron-depleted (serum ferritin less than 20 ng.ml-1, hemoglobin greater than or equal to 12 g.dl-1) women (22-39 yr) performed a VO2max test and an endurance run to(More)
The study evaluated the reliability of data obtained from proxy informants. The index subjects in this study were 81 nondemented participants in the Multi-Institutional Research in Alzheimer Genetic Epidemiology (MIRAGE) study. These index subjects and 159 proxy informants, identified by the index subjects, participated in the study. The kappa statistic(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the effects of 12 weeks of endurance exercise training on iron status measures in previously inactive women and compared the effects of weight-bearing endurance exercise training and non-weight-bearing endurance exercise on iron status measures. DESIGN Randomized, experimental study. SUBJECTS Thirty-one healthy, inactive(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of slow-tempo music listening periods in mechanically ventilated intensive care unit patients. METHODS A randomized crossover study was performed in a 16-bed, adult critical care unit at a tertiary care hospital. Still-sedated patients, mandating at least 3 more days of mechanical ventilation, were included. The intervention(More)
PURPOSE The effect of endurance training on vascular volumes in females has received little research attention. Further, the effect of exercise training intensity on vascular volumes is unknown. Therefore, we investigated the hypothesis that greater hematologic changes would be induced in women by higher exercise intensity during endurance training. (More)
Among women, there is an increased prevalence of sedentary lifestyle and less participation in physical activity at levels recommended by the Surgeon General. As a result, women have been identified as a target group in public health initiatives to increase physical activity. The health-related benefits of habitual, moderate intensity physical activity are(More)
BACKGROUND The subjects were 26 healthy, sedentary adult females with the following characteristics: maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) = 32.0 +/- 7.2 ml.kg-1.min-1; age = 32 +/- 5 yr; body mass index (BMI) = 23.2 +/- 3.4 kg.m-2 who were randomly assigned to control (CON; N = 8); treadmill training (TM; N = 8); or cycle ergometer training (CY; N = 10) to(More)
Dolasetron mesylate (MDL 73,147EF, Anzemet; Hoechst Marion Roussel, Laval, Canada) is a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist undergoing clinical evaluation for use as an antiemetic agent. The pharmacokinetics of dolasetron and its reduced metabolite (MDL 74,156) were studied after administration of single intravenous and oral doses of dolasetron mesylate 2.4 mg/kg in(More)
